The business began in a small basement of owner Jim C. Howe on January 1st, 1981. After 5 years of hard work, it was beginning to pay off. Jim was forced to move into a small rental space in Forest Park, Ohio of 5,000 sq. ft. 6 years later, Jim was on the move again. This was directly across the street in a modern 11,000 sq. ft. facility. Sales continued to climb and once again Jim was looking for room to expand. In May of 1991, Jim added another 4,500 sq. ft. to the existing facility. Today Jim Howe continues here with a simple Philosophy: Service, Integrity and Fair Prices.
